me and Tyson and Lee challenged him to a debate 2 years ago, he just insulted us and pulled the im-a-writer-from-yahoo-so-my-argument-is-not-flawed card. He's just pathetic.

We just finished up a chat through email.  Interesting how it went.  Basically, any kind of debate involving the things he says was avoided...big time, as in, completely ignored...but he read every single word I wrote (which was about 10 paragraphs), and he replied back, speaking solely about how it took him 15 years to get where he's at with Yahoo, that I should write on my own, that message boards are for debates rather than picking up full-time gigs, etc.


I'm pretty sure he understood exactly what I mean when I say a lot of journalists write for reactions, rather than to spread knowledge...but, again, I got nothing out of him.


Alex Kennedy used to write for me, and when he found his way into a paying job, I noticed he started to say things for a reaction.  He wasn't doing it as frequently as Dwyer, but it's still there...and maybe it's necessary.  My biggest problem was that, simply put, I felt Dwyer does it far too often.  He knows the traffic he can get if he criticizes Kobe, from the biggest fanbase in the league.


That's really where I stand with all of this.

^ then be the man of change :)

Be the underground rapper that never started making booty songs when he went mainstream.

You can be a different type of analyst, one that doesn't BS could gather a lot of respect as opposed to those that "mainstream" it by directing traffic and being a "no homer" is what was most respected about Hearn. He is the example of bravery and honesty that announcers nor many journalists know much about nowadays and is a near exinct breed.

Make them remember! Im sure there's a lot of gathering fans that wish for it.
